Eden Community Gives Back: the FOURTH Christmas family has been adopted! (Please help us raise Eden Points for gift shopping 12/03 – 12/08!)

Jul!a Jul!a
Hey everybody, I’m terribly excited to give you the low-down on the family I adopted, although I wish I could give you more. For security reasons and such, the program I’m working with only gave me the names of the children I’m shopping for and what they need. So while I don’t know what their backstory is, I do know that we are giving them something they wouldn’t have been able to otherwise.

I chose to work with the General Assistance office in one of my local towns. Every year they run an Adopt-A-Family program that helps out local families that don’t quite make enough to cover things they do definitely need, but make too much to qualify for most funded assistance.

The family that I adopted consists of 3 total members, two of them being a 4 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. I wasn’t given any information on the parent involved, but in addition to providing the things they know they need like socks, underwear, and pajamas and a few things they want like a puzzle or a craft set, I will also be donating gift cards to grocery stores, that way the family can get groceries as well. It broke my heart to see such simple things we normally take for granted on this list, like the socks and underwear.

I plan to make the most of the money I’m given so that I can help give this family a Christmas they didn’t think they could have. Thank you Eden, for this amazing opportunity to give back to my own community!

Can you guys believe we’re up to the FOURTH Christmas family? Crazy!

Eden is starting this family out with $150 for gifts... but we can add to that amount and make it better as a community! Let's raise some points for the kids in this family and help them have wonderful holidays!

Anyone who would like to help can donate EdenPoints (which Eden will match 50 cents on the "dollar", meaning that if you donate 20.00 in EdenPoints, we will donate $10.00 in cash on your behalf. All you have to do is cash in your points and email me the amount and the code. (victoria@edenfantasys .com) It's that simple! To keep it timely, you must to have your donations in by the end of Wednesday night (December 8th). We will tally all of the donations on Thursday morning and cut the check so Jul!a can go shopping for these kids in time! (Do not post your cashed-in points code here! You can post what amount you donated though. And we will be thanking everyone who gave, at the end of the tally - right here on this thread!) I know some of you out there rack up a whole lot of points – it’d be nice to see you donate

We will be doing one more of these threads next week, for 1 more family for Christmas (for details, see the general giving back thread here)

Thank you to everyone!
